There are a lot of posts here from people who have lost an HDD password. And we are not allowed to answer them. B) May I ask why? I can think of at least three ways, and they solve different issues. 1) Use HDPARM to set a drive password. This is a dangerous utility, and I can't tell you where you will be prompted for said password on boot. 2) Make the password match the BIOS password (I don't know how), and one password will unlock HDD and BIOS. 3) To protect some data, the disk or a portion thereof can be encrypted. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>How to set Hard disk password> Related ressources: ForumHow to set password on external hard disk ForumHow to set Hard disk password ForumHow to set a password to a hard drive ForumSet password for hard drive ForumHow cancel my password on hard disk ForumHow to set a password to a hard drive ForumHow to set up a new enclosure on used hard drive.
